At 334 km2
, the Texelgruppe Nature Park
is the largest of the seven natural parks
in South Tyrol. The diversity of flora and fauna make the Texelgruppe particularly interesting. The Merano High Mountain Trail
is a popular hiking tour
between mountain huts set in the natural park over 90km, circling the entire Texelgruppe above Naturno/Naturns. The highest point en route is almost 3,000 m a.s.l. on the Eisjöchl ridge.
The Texelgruppe Nature Park borders Naturno and runs along the main Alpine ridges. Hikers can experience the Texelgruppe mountain range on a smaller scale at the Naturno Visitor Center
